The Pool House - The Squash Court - 3D

The photograph below was taken in 1986.
In the center is the irregular shaped bayed hall that led 
from the apse on left to the squash court 
on the right side of the photo. 
This area of The Pool House
 is never seen in published photos of the building.  

Below are the remains of the brick foundation
 of the squash court. 
Beyond, a section of the interior wall of the apse lie in ruin. 
The doorway was the entrance into the bachelor quarters.

The Pool House in 3D

 I have been working for a while on a 3D model of The Pool House. At work, I have been using our AutoCAD Map 3D 2009 edition software during my spare time. I will separate the structure into different sections and scan them so that details like the wainscoting and window trims will show up better.

 Known as 'The Cottage', Thomas Morrison Carnegie received a simple cottage house from his mother Lucy Carnegie upon his marriage to Virginia Beggs. The home site was built in the Dungeness compound about 300 yards west of the Dungeness mansion on the western side of the island close to the shore of Cumberland Sound. The rear of the house was built facing the Cumberland Sound. The front of the house had a commanding view of the mansion Dungeness and of the Pergola. In 1948, the home burned to the ground.
